Rising Dutch imports of FLEGT licensed timber

Rising Dutch imports of FLEGT licensed timber

FLEGT licensing is helping importers to comply with EUTR, while the forest sector reforms and new procedures implemented during the FLEGT VPA process form part of a positive narrative that now needs to be communicated more widely to buyers and procurement officials in the EU.

These were key messages of the latest European trade consultation, which targeted Belgian and Dutch traders, hosted by the FLEGT Independent Market Monitor (IMM).

The event held in the Belgian port of Antwerp formed part of a series of consultations to inform IMM work to assess market drivers and market impacts and perceptions of FLEGT. Similar consultations were held last year in France, Germany and the UK, and others are planned in Spain and Italy later in 2019.

There were some comments made at the consultation by Meriam Wortel, representing the NVWA, the Dutch CA for EUTR and FLEGT. A role of NVWA is to monitor volume trends in Indonesian forest product imports into the Netherlands since the start of FLEGT licensing.
